LoveJoy Monday Morning Reflection

Daniel Ervin - Pastor
November 13, 2017

Dear Friends,

As I'm writing to you this morning, I can hear the hustle and bustle of our food pantry down the hall. Twice each month, we open our doors to people in our community who are in need of food. And one Monday per month, we take our pantry on the road to Alton to continue to serve our neighbors in need in that part of our community.

Just yesterday during worship, our church's children helped me to bless a new batch of prayer shawls to give to members and friends of our church who need to feel our love and prayers. I delivered one of these shawls last week to a member who is healing from a fall.

Saturday, we had a memorial service for John Slonaker, giving thanks for his life. Our deacons provided a splendid meal, showing an abundance of hospitality to all who attended.

In these and so many other ways, we are demonstrating our love for God and our love for neighbor.

Christ's Peace,
Daniel Ervin
